A water softening system is an option for homeowners with hard water, or water that contains a lot of minerals.

Magnesium and calcium, which are the major causes of faucet decay from residue accumulation, are removed from the municipal water supply used for the whole house by the softening components.

The sediment, such as tiny particles, are prevented from entering the system by the filter located at the start of the softening stages.

Over time, these particles may build up and endanger the overall softening system.

The system’s functioning will be maintained by replacing the filter every three months.

Step 1:

Cut off the filter’s primary water source.

Disconnect the valve that is located after the filter.

The filter will be cut off from the system by these two primary shutoffs.

Step 2:

If any water leaks unintentionally, slide a bucket beneath the filter’s main housing to collect it.

Step 3:

On the housing of the filter, press the button.

Each manufacturer need to include a repressurizing button on the housing; the button might be red or another visibly stand-out color.

You could see some water dripping from the button’s sides.

By pressing this button, the water softening system will be repressurized, allowing the pipes to continue supplying water to the taps while the filters are being changed.

Step 4:

Looking down at the filter, spin the housing by hand in a clockwise direction.

The housing will be loaded with system water when you move it to the side, so proceed with care.

Step 5:

From the housing, pour water into the bucket.

Find the filter within the housing visually.

Take remove the filter, then put it aside.

Step 6:

By manually inserting it into the housing’s inside, insert a fresh filter.

Visually check to make sure the O-ring or gasket that seals the housing is still firmly pushed into its groove.

Step 7:

Looking down into the device, manually turn the housing and new filter configuration into the water softening system in a counterclockwise direction.

Once the housing is firmly fastened to the main softening component, tighten.

Step 8:

Reopen the downstream valve.

Open the water faucet.

To make sure the faucets are working normally, run water through them.

If the filter is correctly installed in the housing, the water should be clean.
